Kind of an a hold move quite frankly.

It proves to me that I only come here to socialize that when I read your subject line I was sure it was a complaint about our own Lou and his tough trivia questions...

You and me both, Tell--dodged a bullet there! Then again, it might have been the first time I had been called out by name in a subject line, which is an honor in itself. You of course have been named in subjects so many times, you're probably blase about it by now.

Now that you mention it, these days it sorta scares me when it happens, but you're right about the first time...think I even showed the wife. When she'd stopped laughing, I decided never to mention it again. But one year my kids made a birthday cake and put "William Tell" on it.

Is that pathetic or cool? I am not really sure if they were mocking me or preparing me for the looney bin.

I seriously doubt that the producers of a successful television show and the network's legal team waited until 2 hours before a performance to secure rights from the guy who wrote the tune.

And if it were true, which it ain't, I applaud Lou.

Good to look into things a bit before calling names, BD. The fact that Perfect Day is in a mainstream commercial these days might just have a little part in its not being 'cleared' for American TV. I think you have exposed something WAY more fucked up than some rights bitchfest. It's this- "Boyle's friend - 'AGT' judge Piers Morgan...blah,blah,blah" Man, I have better results when my friends are the judges, too.

Seriously. It's not like a car company asked for the right so they can stick it in a commercial.

I saw that earlier and stuck it out on a listserv. Here's what I have gotten so far:

Interesting question, [TOOTMO]. If she were to RECORD a cover of a song, that would be subject to a compulsory license under section 115 of the Copyright Act. Most live performances are handled by the performance rights organizations such as BMI and ASCAP, but I don't think that the license there is compulsory.

AND

Of course she could've sang the song. And faced any consequences for doing so. But that'd be a different drama altogether. Regardless, they'd've come out very, very far ahead monetarily. Frankly, I'm a bit confused as to why the network's attorneys didn't clear the use ahead of time...
But here's the BIG-BIG question: Do we think Reed expected them to NOT go on with the show after telling them "No" with less than 2 hours to
curtain?

What I don't understand is how is that different from Jerry covering a Beatles tune or any band doing a Zeppelin cover during a show at the spur of the moment?

I'll let you know if I actually get a response that answers more questions than it raises---effin lawyers for ya!

However, Lou will (for a small fee I imagine) pose for the cover of a Kung Fu magazine (http://www.renguangyi.com/ren%20image/mag%20-%20KF2003Jun_cover.jpg)

I really should have gotten the cover for "Secret of Hung Men". My agent really sucks.
